In Topic: Babs on last night's D: "...best we've had all year."

01 March 2013 - 01:55 PM

Don't know if it's been mentioned already, but this dawned on me last night:

 

Kronwall

Ericsson

Smith

Quincey

Kindl

Lashoff

 

All Red Wings draft picks except for Lashoff, who we signed as an 18 year old. An all home grown backend! 


In Topic: Mursak on waivers

The exact same thing happened when Holland had to waive Quincey to keep Ericsson.  People wept tears of blood and whipped themselves in the street.  For the next two seasons we all heard how Holland made a huge mistake and he had to get Q back.  When Kenny brings back the Q we all see how much worse he is than Ericsson and we're glad big-E stuck with the team.

 

My memory might be fuzzy, but I don't think Quincey had anything to do with Ericsson. I think Quincey was waived to keep Chelios and Meech. Quincey was waived at the beginning of the 2008-2009 season, Big E started in Grand Rapids that year if I'm not mistaken.

Riley Sheahan drunk and in a Teletubby costume would be more serviceable than Cleary at this point.

Oof. Really bad game for the Wings. Hopefully they can put it behind them and turn things around quick. Some good teams are 0-1 after today, so there's no need to panic, but you don't want to start slow with this shortened season.


In Topic: Where does Bertuzzi fit?

26 April 2012 - 03:37 PM

I think Bertuzzi fits best in the bottom 6, maybe getting some powerplay time and some top 6 time on occasion. Plus his usual shootout spot. I think a bottom 6 along the lines of:

Bertuzzi - Abdelkader - Prust
Miller (Cleary) - Helm - Eaves

Would be really strong. I love Bertuzzi, but we have too many streaky players in the top 6 right now. I think he can still provide some good secondary scoring though. I also think with less minutes he'll stay healthier and be able to play more physical down the stretch like we've seen him do before.
